This is an episode of "The Comedy Hour", sponsored by Frigidaire. The performers in this episode include comedian Bob Hope, actor Robert Cummings, harpist Robert Maxwell, opera singer Lily Pons, tap-dancer Betty Bruce, and a speech by Eleanor Roosevelt. Lots of comedy, music, dancing and heavy-handed talks about "freedom" (please let me know if the video plays back OK. Also, please note that on several occasions the kinescope print appears to have sprocket hole damage).
